Welcome St Patrick! Most people recognize St Patrick as the Patron Saint of Ireland. But he is also the Patron Saint of Engineers which is what this one represents. He/she is kind of a steampunk saint with lots of metals, chains, gears and other typically steampunk paraphernalia.
St Patrick is built on the Retro Cafe Art, Medium Santos Doll Shrine. Once constructed, I paint them first and then in this case gave them several other coats of glaze to make them appear to be metal.
If you have seen my work then you know that I love to add antique found objects and this one is no exception. He has a fine collection of gears, bulbs and faucets parts.

The breastplate is resin and real watch oarts.
